They do: "Reprints are acceptable as long as the author retains the copyright."

Which makes no sense at all. I hold the copyright on many stories that I cannot currently sell as a reprint due to it being exclusively contracted elsewhere.

But don't the rights revert back to you after a certain amount of time? I imagine it means once you've gotten the rights back.

Copyright means you own the story. Most generally, you wrote it. (This excludes ghostwriting and some media-tie-in writing gigs.) You, and only you, get to decide who you will sell or lease certain publishing rights to. When rights revert, they revert to you. That is your copyright: literally, you have the right to decide who can copy (print and sell) the story. Authors nearly always retain the copyright on their stories.

So, because you own the copyright, you also own the bundle of publication rights that comes with it. You have the right to make decisions about those publication rights. You and only you, the copyright holder, can sign a contract saying Publisher A can publish the story in print form for 5 years. You and only you, the copyright holder, can sign a contract saying Publisher B can publish the story in an e-zine. You and only you, the copyright holder, can -- if you're stupid, ignorant, desperate, naive, conned, or being paid really really freaking well -- sign a contract giving all rights and subrights and licensing rights to Person C forever, and then Person C henceforth makes all the decisions and all the profits.

Copyright on a story is analagous to owning the title on a house you built. It's your house. You own it. But you can lease the house out to another family. Or you can rent out a single bedroom to a boarder. Even if someone else is living in it you still own the title to the house. But if you've rented it out to a nice couple with kids you can't simulataneously tell your cousin that he and his frat-boy mates can throw a party at the house next weekend.

So, if you have sold Press A the exclusive right to publish and sell your story in print form from now until 2013, you still hold the copyright on the story, but you cannot sell Press B the right to publish and sell your story in print form. Not until after 2013.

NewTown Writers, like so many, have their terminology wrong. They confuse copyright with publication rights. It's a worrisome trend; personally, I prefer to submit to markets that are run by people who know what they're doing, and IMO that includes understanding the publication rights they are buying from me.
